Things that make you go 'Huh?'

In yesterday’s Financial Review, occupying the cosy spot right next to the editorial where many years ago one would have been entertained by the flint-dry columns of the eternally scowling Labor heretic Peter Walsh, you can find a long rant by John Hewson. Towards the end of this rant Hewson writes:

I believe that politics is about redistribution and certainly should be focused on helping the ‘have nots’. We seem to have lost all of this.
We boast about how well we’re doing in terms of growth, inflation and unemployment yet, even in our country, we are building an ever-widening gap between the rich and the poor.

Huh?! What has happened to the former ‘feral abacus’? Someone please give the man a free CIS subscription before it’s too late.
